Fresh & or Cooked Salsa Recipe for Both!

 This is the COOKED version that I am snacking on as I type!

Man oh Man Salsa & Chips one of the GREATEST snacking foods of ALL TIME! Make it FRESH for yourself TWEEKED to suit you! I LOVE my SALSA but MILD for ME! You may HEAT this recipe up as you wish but I MUNCH MINE MILD, CHILD!
This is a cup of the FRESH SALSA no cooking REQUIRED!
Now this is a cup of the FRESH Salsa only COOKED & vinegar added! I LOVE this recipe BOTH WAYS but the cooked version will keep longer in the refrigerator over the fresh version! When making a big batch, I cook, but keep some of the fresh out just to eat RIGHT AWAY! Happy Snacking FOODIES!

 BASIC SALSA& MAKES ABOUT 5 CUPS  either recipe you use!
8 Large Tomatoes cored & quartered
2 Medium Onions peeled & quartered
2 Large Green Peppers cleaned cored & quarted
1 Rib Celery OPTIONAL
2 TBS Cilantro OR Parsley ( I use parsley as I do not like Cilantro)
Throw the veggies including the cilantro or parsley in the food processor & pulse for about 15 pulses or so to get a good chopped density. Remove from processor & if eating this as fresh just add about 1 & 1/2 TBS FRESH squeezed lime juice & salt to taste! YOU HAVE SALSA! Isn't that EASY? IF you want to heat up your salsa add fresh hot peppers that you cleaned & seeded & quartered adding  as you like as much or as little added as you add the other veggies!

Use the ABOVE INGREDIENTS EXCEPT THE LIME JUICE! When you dump out the food processor dump into a large saucepan. Now add 2 TBS RED WINE VINEGAR & 2 or 3 pinches of sugar & salt to taste! Cook about 1 hour  & stirring off & on for about 1 hour until salsa thickens! Remove from heat & refrigerate until using! Use for many recipes or just as chip dip OH SO GOOD!
